In a Nutshell:

Taxodium distichum ( Baldcypress , Bald Cypress , or Swamp Cypress ) is a species of conifer native to the southeastern United States . more...
* Although this plant can be grown in wet soils and shallow water, it thrives in any soil and trees actually grow faster in normal unflooded soils. Established plants succeed in standing water up to 60cm deep - in such a situation the roots develop 'knees', curious cone-shaped structures that grow above the ground. Tolerates the high pH of chalk streams. Tolerates atmospheric pollution. more...

Bonsai Comments:

The bald cypress is a deciduous tree because it loses it leaves in the late winter, the needles may fall off the tree over the winter, or they may stay on the tree until the spring, and it is a conifer because the seed is produced in cones. Taxodium distichum grows best in wet/soggy conditions so need frequent watering. The tree is a fast grower, and can achieve 36 inches of growth in just one year making it a good bonsai specimen.

This Bonsai should be in full sun during the growing season. Where it is colder in the winter it needs protection as it does not tolerate frost in containers.
Water heavily in the summer , less in the winter but never let it dry out. Prune in the summer and shape in the fall, not susceptible to pests or disease.
